People keen to check out the biggest kapa haka festival in the country are being warned to beware of scalpers. About 60,000 people are expected in Wellington on February 21 for Te Matatini ki te Ao. It is 40 years since the competition was held in Wellington, and corporate tickets were snapped up in less than a minute. Scalpers are now selling them for twice the price although standard tickets are still available. Carl Ross is the chief executive of Te Matatini. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
